If Menomena and the National had a baby, it would be El Vy.

Wait.

Update: Menomena and the National have had a baby and it’s name is El Vy. The band, which includes Matt Berninger from the National and Brent Knopf from Menomena, recently announced their pairing and, even more recently, released their second track off their debut album entitled “I’m The Man To Be.” It’s a funkified jam which brings a dance vibe atmosphere to Berninger’s vocals. Of the song, Berninger said: “There’s this great Schoolboy Q song ‘There He Go’ which samples Menomena’s ‘Wet and Rusting,”…I thought it would be funny to re-sample the same sample and do it from the perspective of a pathetic self-aggrandizing rocker alone in a hotel room. Something I know a lot about. That’s how it started but then Brent took the sample out and we wrote an entirely new song.”

The new single was released with an accompanying lyric video, which shows  Berninger and Knopf grooving and goofing under the sun in Los Angeles. The video was directed by Tom Berninger, Matt’s brother, who also directed The National’s documentary Mistaken For Strangers.
